Very central guest-house, very welcoming, helpful with local information and central location. Wish we had had more time to explore this great little town.Would love to have stayed an extra night but was fully booked. Loved Dingle and Beara Peninsula. Parking is in the street but this is very common. We packed an overnight bag so we didn't have to... More

Stayed here last Summer for 1 night. Very nice. Highly recommend. Well priced. They claimed the breakfast was to die for so you can imagine how excited we were the following morning. It was ok. Nothing wrong with it but certainly nothing to be shouting about. Will stay again.

We loved how sweet Noreen and Neil were! Nothing was too much trouble, The b&b is conveniently located right on the main street, so walking to anything is easy. Things quiet down in the evening, so the road noise really didn't seem to be an issue for us. Breakfasts were great! We wouldn't hesitate in recommending a stay at Virginia's!

This inn is conveniently located on the Main Street above the town shops. Easy access to pubs and dining options. However the Main Street is also the main highway used to access the Ring of Kerry and is quite heavily used. Most of the rooms face this street and are subject to the associated noise. While our room had insulated... More

This was the best B&B and accommodation experience throughout our whole trip. Excellent location in the centre of town with plenty of restaurants, shops and entertainment. Neil and Noreen were fantastic hosts and took the extra time to make us feel welcome and tell us about the area. Breakfast here is something else as well - three course dining. Fantastic... More

During our two week vacation, Virginia’s Gueshouse was the BEST place we stayed! Neil & Noreen are awesome hosts! And the breakfasts were like eating in a 5 Star restaurant plus they had fresh squeezed orange juice every morning! Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We highly recommend Virginia’s!

Except for on-street parking (which we did find a space) this was one of our best B&B stays. Great location, clean and roomy room. Hosts were great - excellent breakfast selections (agree with others about the ginger & orange juice!) and offered great recommendations for dining & music. Would like to return and spend more time in Kenmare - one... More

Virginia's could be summed up in one word, everything was perfect! Hosts were extremely attentive in making sure we had everything we needed. The food was very tasty and the presentation was impressive.

Noreen and Neil were great hosts, very accommodating. Clean rooms, central location, parked down nearby lane without difficulty. Breakfasts were varied and yummy. Would recommend this to family and friends! Thank you

We enjoyed our stay at Virginia's Guesthouse on May 2014. The breakfast was exceptional (fresh and well cooked, especially the speciality of the house : blue cheese and pears, and the fresh juice with ginger and orange). The room was pretty and really clean. Great location in the heart of Kenmare. We warmly recommend this B&B !!
